transfer files only once

i have a question. is there an easy way to remember transfered
files to a specific destination host.

little example: 
1) host A: with files a, b, c
2) rsync-transfer them to host B
3) add a new file d to host A
4) delete file c from host B
5) again a rsync transfer, but file c get skipped, d get transferred

maybe as a feature request:
add an check for an extended attribut of the files which gets
set if a file is the first time transfered and get skipped if
the attribut is set.

or is it possible to move all transfered files directly in an
rsync exclude file; would have the same effect

i hope somebody understand what i want ;-)
